I have a hold for tickets from Tel Aviv >> Moscow >> JFK (and back) at a fantastic price on Transaero Air. The online reviews I’m reading are a bit scary. Anyone here flown on Transaero and can fill me in on what to expect?December 22, 2014 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #1095688
Tansareo has $299 round trip tickets to Israel, for A$299 I would take them in a heart beat
I know a few people who flew them without incidentDecember 22, 2014 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1095689barlevParticipant
The Russian rubel is losing value and there are claims the company are on the verge of bankruptcy, however the company claim that these are unfounded rumorsDecember 22, 2014 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm #1095690
If you pay by Credit Card, you are protected if they go bankruptDecember 22, 2014 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm #1095691
Oh well, no credit cards accepted. They want bank transfer, Paypal, or Western Union only. I guess I’m out of luck.December 22, 2014 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #1095692
You can use a credit card with paypalDecember 22, 2014 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #1095693nishtdayngesheftParticipant
I know someone who recently flew with them and the report was that it was the worst experience flying they had ever had.
Uncomfortable seats, noisy, rude attendants.December 22, 2014 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #1095694
You can pay $350 for lousy service or $950 for good service on a good airline
Its your decision, once you get there it doesnt matter, you can spend the $600 a ticket on a nicer hotel with better foodDecember 22, 2014 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #1095695bringmoshiachParticipant
I flew it twice. There were a lot of other Jews on the flights and I felt very safe. It’s not the greatest airline in terms of legroom and food etc., but it got from NY to Israel back without incident twice for a much better price than other airlines.December 23, 2014 5:09 am at 5:09 am #1095696One of the chevraParticipant
FLIGHT OF MONDAY DEC 22 2014 – NY-TEL AVIV
ONLY 10% !!!!! of the passengers received their luggage in Israel – All the rest of the luggage was left in Moscow!!
No-one was served kosher food on the Moscow-TLV flight- The airline claimed “We forgot to load the kosher orders!!”
What can happen next???

One of the chevra, where does this information come from?December 23, 2014 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #1095698HaLeiViParticipant
I flew with them this year. They had kosher, behaved professionally and friendly.December 29, 2014 4:56 am at 4:56 am #1095699One of the chevraParticipant
takahmamash: The information is first hand!
My sister visited this past week and hats what happened.
HaLeiVi (and all others writing about past flights from a while back) The troubles started pretty recently because the airline is in very deep financial trouble, so old stories don’t show anything.

Flew with them last week August 4 2015 and back to NY Aug 12. Was very happy with the service. I saved about $900 (for 2 tickets) The only problem I found was, the Moscow -tel aviv plane had very little leg room. On the TelAviv -Moscow flight it was just the opposite the seats were wide width extra leg room I felt I was in first class. The only other problem has nothing to do with the airline. 1) A 5 hour stop over was a bit long. (5 am – 10 am) 2)Unless you eat the airline food with the Russian hechsher you will have to bring along food. Bear in mind the total flight time is about 18 hours.
